STDs and family: Your housemates are under no risk at all. Gonorrhea or chlamydia need direct access to their private parts to be contagious. And, if you have been treated and 48 hours have passed you are no longer contagious at all.

NG does not spread: Via wash cloths, toothbrushes, etc. Direct genital/genital, genital/anal or genital/oral contact is pretty much the only way so don't worry.
